“Greetings, Father. I see you fusing a combination of ethers for your next venture. It looks fun. May I serve you in any way?” The handsome Prince gazed reverently at his father.
“Yes, son, in a twinkling.”
God winked with an unusual sadness. This universe would not be pleasing like the others. Instead, complications intertwined. His son and the Spirit would play a part in the workings of this creation, not merely observers, as a problem in the immediate vicinity needed managing.
The son perceived His thoughts. “Father, I have heard rumors amongst the angels.”
“Yes, Son. Lucifer’s exquisiteness has enamored too many. Do not worry your peaceful nature. A place is prepared for him and his followers when rebellion comes. Beware. While you serve me, he shall tempt your faith in me. Know I am with you always.”
“Oh, Father, of course you are with me. Why do you utter such obvious words?”
Spirit entered, whirling around the two, delighting them, before joining the conversation.
“He reminds you because your assistance is essential, young one. You are the gateway for me, in this important mission. Watch,” she whispered in a strong hush.
The son and spirit observed the expulsion of Lucifer, the finalization of Earth, and the creation of Adam and Eve.
“I love them already, Father. But why do you look pensive and not delighted?”
“Lucifer is within their midst, Son. He shall reign his anger and vengeance upon them to defy me.”
“Father, forgive me.”
The son hung his head in shame for he had wanted Lucifer spared. God and Spirit silently chortled. Spirit whirled through the Prince as God spoke.
“Son, this universe is made for you. What appears errored is not for I am Creator. Redemption is a part of the plan. You shall become a beacon that opens an entry to my kingdom. You shall become part of humanity for a time, bearing their pains, their sins, their death.”
The son mulled this over and fully understanding the events that lay ahead, nodded. “I provide a conduit to you, confirming that your being is stronger than Lucifer’s lies.”
The son envisioned Lucifer’s reaction to humans willing to serve their creator.
“Yes, Son. When you return to me, Spirit shall enter the world to stimulate the love you planted. She shall minister to my creation directly and interfere with Lucifer’s unrepentant schemes.”
Spirit soothed the son’s troubled brow, whispering. “Yes. I stir up the love you demonstrated and travel over the Earth like a whirlwind, entering the hearts and souls with that love for those who accept you and your teachings. You and I change human souls for eternity according to the plan of free will.”
“Father, the plan of free will is not a peaceful one. Lucifer should enjoy that.”
“He shall enjoy and be frustrated by it. The commotion caused by your existence shall give Lucifer a harder time. A pathway to Heavenly eternity shall be assured humans who choose to follow you. Blessed is my son.”
The young divinity smiled. He understood it was a lose/lose lesson for Lucifer, once his friend, now his enemy. His Father beamed at the depth of his son’s understanding while retaining empathy.
“Father, this universe should prove interesting. I stand ready to obey but wonder if, in human form, would I still talk to you, feel you? Would Spirit commune with me?”
“I shall speak to you, my son. But you shall not perceive the comforter until your return. Be strong for I am with you always, even in turmoil, in your darkest hour, in your moments of human despair, I await you. You shall join me again and sit by my side for eternity.”
God pointed as he parted the veil. “Look, Son, Mary shall be your mother.”
“She is pure of heart, Father. I will fare well with her. I will persevere my persecution for the well-being of humanity and to honor my Father, creator of all, who stimulates my being with authority to follow His design.”
God, Spirit, and Son united with a power that remains un expressible in prose. Then God initiated His intention and commanded, “Go forth, Son, and be born.”
